Though commonly related to MP3 audio files, ID3 tags can be found in various other audio file formats, such as Ogg and WMA. Power ID3 Editor offers you the possibility of adding, modifying, or deleting the ID3 tags of these three types of files using a simple and attractive interface. It supports batch editing, which will help you to catalog full albums in no time.
Power ID3 Editor provides support for ID3v1 tags only, but these are usually enough to keep your music collection well organized. The program’s one-window interface is divided into two sections – the left panel is for you to select all the audio files whose tags you wish to change, while the right panel will show you the tags of the file selected (if available). These tags are Title, Artist, Album, Track, Year, Genre, and Comments, of which only Genre offers you a list of options to choose from. Any (or all) of these tags can be “locked” and “unlocked”, a feature that will help you edit all the selected files in one single operation. When you lock one tag, its content is automatically replicated in all the files present in the left panel. Thus, tags like Artist, Album, Year, or Genre can be filled in just once for all the tracks in one album.
Power ID3 Editor offers a simple functionality in a simple interface. It may not be the most sophisticated tag editor on the market, but it delivers what it promises. The lack of support for ID3v2 tags may be a serious argument for a certain group of potential users, but there are many others for whom the set of tags provided by this tool is surely more than enough.
